When Should You Send Baby Shower Invitations?
Planning a baby shower? It’s important to give guests enough notice to make plans to attend. Here are a few things to consider when sending out baby shower invitations.
Typically, baby shower invitations should be sent out 8-10 weeks prior to the event. This allows plenty of time for out of town guests to make travel arrangements.
Make It Unique
Want to make your baby shower extra special? Personalize invitations to match the shower theme. Adding a special touch makes guests excited for the event and adds a fun element.
Include Important Info
When designing your baby shower invitations, make sure to include basic event details to avoid confusion. Facts guests should know about:
- Date of the baby shower
- Time of the event
- Location of the baby shower
- RSVP information and deadline
- Special instructions (registry info, dress code, etc.)
Don’t forget to add your own personal touch with special notes and quotes.
Once invitations are sent, it’s important to track RSVPs to ensure you can properly accommodate everyone. Set a RSVP deadline of two to three weeks before the shower to give yourself enough time to buy supplies.
One to two weeks prior to the shower, it’s helpful to send out reminder messages to guests. A quick email or text message helps reinforce the date, time, and location of the baby shower.
Time for Celebrating!
Planning and sending invitations for a baby shower doesn’t have to be stressful. Focus on the event and leave event details in the hands of your guests. With careful planning and plenty of notification, you’ll have all your loved ones ready to celebrate your little one’s special day!
